Poor MMC, after all of their hard work and also keeping us posted on everything almost every step of the way, there's still folks willing to drop them after one bot is shown from a company that's been having issues with their current combiner.
Yes, I think the TFC version is off to a good start as well but damn folks, at least wait for some more information before jumping ship.

TFC is tempting, since I do love Hercules and Uranos, but I committed to MMC so I'm gonna stick with them for Predaking.
The big thing for me is going to be size though. I know some people will want Predaking to tower over all the other TFC combiners, so they'll probably make TFC Predaking a lot bigger and more expensive. Whereas, I think MMC's Predaking will be closer to Hercules and Uranos in height, thusly cheaper and a more consistant combiner size, which I'd prefer.

MMC all the way. TFC just never quite hits the mark right. In fact if MMC were to do their versions of already existing 3rd party combiners, I'd probably purchase replacements of Devastator, Superion and Menasor.

Bigger doesn't always equal better especially if the connectors and joints aren't up to the challenge of holding up the weight.

Right now, I like MMC's bot mode, TFC's beast mode and as for combined mode, I'm ever so slightly for TFC's. I think I'll stick to my MMC pre orders, but I haven't shut the door on TFC yet.

TFC is the best Razorclaw so far IMO. Certainly the best lion face - they're predators after all, their eyes should face FORWARD. Though I'm not a fan of the embossed mane - something too "Voltron" about it. As for the cannons, it's not the size that sticks with me but the shape - the sliding guns used by MMC look like they're 2 minutes post-coital (not limp, but getting there) and don't look very high caliber. If it were a handgun it wouldn't matter as much, but these are very much a part of the figure's stance.
But I don't like TFC's history & reputation. They charge a shit-ton for every piece, don't provide package sets, then release "optional upgrades" which are anything but for another $50-100 instead of releasing the best, the first time through.
That said, it is making me waver on my investment so far in MMC. I LOVE, LOVE their build & color quality on the Seekers molds, but the time between Rex's teasers is frustrating and honestly, I'm not loving the overall combiner shape as it nears release. It's lacking a certain "organic" combination - there's no "flow" between the feet, to legs, to torso. It's a rolled up rhino. I compare all gestalts to the standard set by Maketoys Giant, who looks like he was BORN that way.
I preordered on a TFSource stack, so I have the option to cancel out which is nice. We'll see.

MMC looks like it'll be the most impressive Predaking out of the three, but TFC's Razorclaw looks amazing in all three modes, while I feel MMC's suffers just a bit in robot mode. UT just looks very cheap and kitbashy, and rather pitiful next to the other two.
I'm still not sure if I'm getting either one, but I'm currently leaning towards MMC. I'm withholding further judgement until we see more of TFC's combiner, since I don't want it to turn into another Uranos.
